This book provides valuable insight to practitioners of diplomacy, academics, researchers, specialists and general readers alike. The text is foundational and useful for the study of history, diplomacy and conflict resolution. The intimate knowledge of and involvement in the Namibian issue will guide a new generation of political and history scholars, both in South Africa and abroad. Those scholars, in particular, who desire credible insights into some of the most dramatic events in South Africa’s modern diplomatic and political history, forming the pillar of its foreign policy for almost 25 years, will benefit from this new source. The book makes it especially possible for researchers and other stakeholders to access an authoritative record of South Africa’s diplomatic history. The same applies for those interested in the events at the SABC during the period March 1983 and April 1988.
